A great and very unusal actor. Imagine if you will a becalmed Pierre Clementi.
The first image that comes to mind is of Terzieff as a centaur in Pasolini’s Medea, then of him as himsef in Garrels’ Un Ange Passe
Other great Terzieff films include Mauro Bolognini’s Pasolini-scripted La Notte Brava
Terzieff’s in there too. Marcel Carne had a fine ey for les garcons
Don’t know why that didn’t copy
It was L.T et B.B.
Thanks for remembering him. The actor was in one of my favorite movies of all time, DESERT OF THE TARTARS (Valerio Zurlini), in a wonderful performance. Terzieff held his own here among one of the most amazing casts of male actors ever. He is quite a touching figure in this indelible movie.
Agreed! A visually stunning film (though hard to believe David Lean contemplated making it — it’s kind of an anti-epic) with an amazing cast, and Terzieff perfectly cast. He first hit me in La Prisonniere, hence the still. A great actor and one of the all-time great faces, able to combine beauty and sickness.
